As far as I know (IANAjam-maker) jam is usually set with pectin, not
gelatin. This is a gummy protein that occurs naturally in fruit (although
there isn't enough of it in some fruits to set jam and one has to add
extra). The sacred family recipies of your friends-and-relations may have
their quota of gelatin, of course.
